I tend to catnap on long trips and usually wake up with contact lenses as dry as the Sahara. A couple of drops of this Visine, made especially for contact lens wearers, lubricates and refreshes my dry eyes. Plus, the bottle is so handy I can carry it in my purse on the plane or in the car, and once I'm at my destination it stores easily in my pocket.
I don't know what the scientific explanation is, but a change in altitude or climate causes dry, dry, skin, doesn't it? Since I live in sea-level Los Angeles, even a simple trip to Palm Springs will have my skin begging for hydration. I love this rich Bath & Body Works Hand Cream, plus the Midnight Pomegranate scent is so seductively sweet.
I love to stimulate my brain with a good read on a long trip. Cross Realities by Rickey Teems is a real page-turner about one family's struggle to stay together, stay alive, and keep God first - not an easy feat in the rough streets of L.A., especially when one brother is so heavily involved in the street life. Will the family be able to save him, or will his gang-entrenched lifestyle lead him to destruction?
If the name looks familiar it's because the author is my super-talented big brother!

A little gaudy and a lot dramatic, giant finger baubles have a glamorous, playing-dress-up kind of feel, plus they add interest and dimension to Fall's richer, warmer colors. Don't be afraid to wear two at a time and don't limit yourself to matchy-matchy rings that go perfectly with your outfit. Mix it up - wear them with jeans and a bomber jacket or your sleekest shift dress, and don't forget to let your fingers do the talking in leather or rhinestones.
The peachy-pink and gold stones make this ring feminine and pretty, but not too precious. The sort of ring you can wear to sweeten up a pair of jeans, basic tee, and simple gold hoops, or your favorite LBD. And you can't beat the price!
I also picked up not one, not two, but three of these little trapeze dresses from Old Navy. For a mere $15 each, I suggest you hightail it over there, like, now! You'll go crazy over the pretty colors and patterns, plus this is probably the comfiest dress you'll ever jump into on a lazy weekend morning. Happy shopping!
The collection (Miller's second lingerie line) was designed for "the way women live their lives today," says the designer, no doubt referring to the pearls of wisdom passed down from such celebs as Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston (as well as countless other women who are faithful to the third date rule). Seven bra styles, including a lace balconette (Hello, cleavage!) and a plunging strapless number, plus coordinating bottoms and a suspender belt with clips will make up the too-sexy collection, which will be available at Bloomingdale's this winter, and Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus after the first season. Expect to see print ads in Elle this November.
New York - According to WWD, Ambercrombie & Fitch may be coming to SoHo - and coming BIG I might add! A 40,000 square feet space is now occupied by Pottery Barn, but reports suggest the store will be closing to make room for the cargo-slinging, jean shorts-pushing A&F.
